SPEX CAPITAL LAUNCHED SPECIALIST DIGITAL VENTURE CAPITAL FUND, WITH FIRST €100M SUBFUND INVESTING IN THE DIGITAL HEALTHCARE OF TOMORROW

Spex Capital launched the Spex Venture Health-Tech Fund, a new €100M global fund devised to identify, partner with, and fund the next generation of early-stage digital healthcare and med-tech start-ups, accelerating their route to commercialisation to improve healthcare systems globally.

The Spex Venture Health-Tech Fund represents the latest step in our mission to invest in founders with a vision to disrupt healthcare delivery systems. With a fundraising target of €100M, the fund will be used to invest in early-stage health-tech ventures, from seed up to series B, offering tickets up to €5M.

Our unique relationships are our differentiator

Our connections to the NHS in England through our partnership with MedCity alongside our vibrant ecosystem, provides the tools and connections early-stage founders need to navigate a difficult funding environment and foster stronger, more scalable businesses which will in turn deliver superior returns to our investors.

Thanks to our relationship with EIT Digital, Spex Capital has access to the European Commission’s preferred partner for EU activities in digital.

Our team is our strength 

Leveraging years of knowledge from our diverse team of VC veterans and investment managers with backgrounds in medical practice, academia and finance, we have the flexibility to work with founders innovating across all aspects of the healthcare landscape.

The team is bolstered by the appointment of Brent Stackhouse, who joins Spex Capital as Senior Partner. Stackhouse brings a wealth of experience as the head of the Mount Sinai Venture arm, and his exposure to the US health system and investor base, provides a springboard for the overseas expansion of our portfolio companies. Stackhouse has considerable governance and exit experience, having closed and managed 26 investments and successfully exited eight companies at Mount Sinai Ventures.

Claudio D’Angelo, our Founder and CEO, comments “Even before Covid-19, the drive for countries to make better use of digital technology in healthcare had already begun. With this fund, our partnership with MedCity, and a broad network of high calibre Senior Advisors, we will have unparalleled access to invest in the best startups within this space.” 

Join the healthcare digital revolution.
